Here is an update on the JavaFX "Lombard" release.

As you saw from Richard's e-mail last week, the version number for the 
Lombard release has been changed from 3.0 to 8.0 to reflect alignment 
with JDK8 and as a step toward having a single version number that 
identifies both. We will still use "Lombard" in JIRA to identify the 8.0 
release. Any reference to 3.0 from here on out should be treated by 
adding 5 to get the right result. :)

Second, weekly early access builds of JavaFX 8.0 will be available 
shortly as part of the weekly JDK 8 builds. We hope this will happen 
starting later this week.

Third, the openjfx repositories for JavaFX 8.0 are in the process of 
being created and should be available this week.
